environment. unless you have the right perspective. bny mellon wealth management has the vision and experience to look beyond the obvious. we'll uncover opportunities, find hidden risk, and make success a reality. bny mellon wealth management >>> we have a very distinguished group around the table today. former commerce secretary carlos gutierrez, who is also an advisor to presidential candidate mitt romney. former republican presidential candidate and ambassador john huntsman. gary bauer himself, a former presidential candidate, and president of the conservative group american values. republican congresswoman cathy mcmorris rogers, a highest ranking republican woman many congress, and our own cnn senior congressional correspondent dana bash. i'm going to hand this to you. >> maybe a couple -- >> thanks, candy. >> it's great to be here with all of you. >> i would lay the blame squarely on the far right wing of the republican party. >> governor. >> no vision. without a clear vision for the future, you can't rally people of all backgrounds. >> i think that was a shot at you. >> i was going to sa
is the contributing environment that is lending itself. a lot of the police officers have to be at a certain rank and have to be kept on the contract as a source of the sort of securing full time to permanent status with protection. this is one of the conditions that actually makes it much easier on superiors and senior members of the security establishment to basically pressure them into taking questionable activities. if you don't pull the trigger then i will endure contract by the end of this year because you are in a contract you are basically not protected. i would -- you know, i would question the assumption that the securities sector reform is necessarily aimed at, you know, disempowering are dismantling the securities sector, and i would actually say that there are a lot of measures, a lot of proposals in the case of egypt that would strengthen the status of the living conditions and the working conditions of the egyptian police. >> we think that this idea of the reform versus strengthening. when we talk about strengthening, are we talking about more weapons, more capabilities that they c
is that on your priority list? >> for me having been the chairman of the environment committee twice, i have spent my -- a lot of my career greeting voters in nevada and doing things that i think are environmentally important. climate change is an extremely important issue for me and i hope we can address it reasonably as we have seen with the storms that are overwhelming our country in the world. we need to do something about it. thank you. >> good afternoon. let me start by offering my congratulations to president obama and the first lady and the vice-president. like many americans i was hoping that this election would turn out differently. there rummy and paul ryan are good man and the leaders. i want to wish them and their families well. the american people have spoken. they have reelected president obama and they have reelected the putt -- a republican majority. there is a mandate in yesterday's results and a mandate to find a way to work together on the solutions to the challenges will face as a nation. a message today is not one of confrontation but one of conviction. in the weeks and month
environment makes it difficult for them to vote for scott brown and heather wilson. the problems -- the problem with the republicans -- they have some very ideologically driven voters, but part of the republican base is more open to voting for democrats than the democratic base is to vote for republicans, i believe. that even example. heidi is a terrific candidate in north dakota. mitt romney one north dakota by 21. and i was able to overcome that. it is true that she -- that the president one north dakota slightly less than -- at mitt romney 1 north dakota at slightly less than the president's won massachusetts. but the republican coalition includes kind of a soft swing voter that is inclined to vote republican, but as more willing to vote for democrats. john barrow in georgia, the republican candidate was horrendous. a challenger refused to debate the incumbent. [laughter] i didn't say it was a bad decision, i just said it says something about the challenger. i think this is an additional problem. it is easier for moderate, centrist democrats to feel the republican voters than
and values that increasingly in a polarized environment makes it difficult for thome vote for scott brown and others. the problem with the republicans they're based, ideologically driven voters, tea party folks but part of the republican base is open for democrats then democratic base is voting for republicans, i believe. i'm sure we can chew this over. let me give you an example. let me give you an example. heidi hide camp -- hidecamp, terrific candidate in north dakota. mitt romney won north dakota by 20, 21 points. heidi was able to overcome that. it's true that she -- the president won north dakota slightly less then mid-romney won north dakota slightly less then the president won massachusetts. but i think the republican coalition includes kind of a soft, swing voters who is inclined to vote republican but more willing to vote for democrats. jim mathisson surviving in utah is amazing. amazing. john barrio in georgia, yes, the republicans candidate against him was horrendous. when the last time you heard a challenger refused to debate the incumbent? [laughter] >> you have to know your
energy, while protecting our environment. across america, these technologies protect air - by monitoring air quality and reducing emissions... ...protect water - through conservation and self-contained recycling systems... ... and protect land - by reducing our footprint and respecting wildlife. america's natural gas... domestic, abundant, clean energy to power our lives... that's smarter power today. ♪ lou: much of te northeast is digging out from a snowstorm that hammered the region last night nine days after hurricane sandy the storm dumped more than a foot of snow in parts of connecticut, 36 census. homes without power because of the recent storm bring the tota number still to just about three-quarters of a million. not helping at all, atleast ten temporary shelters and the new york area take sides of their doors stating there were closed because of the severe weather. let me repeat that the math the messenger closed due to weather. are you kidding? where is governor christie, president obama? we need a photo next to tt sign. now tat the president has won the united states is helpi
to the environment than in fact was really occurring. acknowledging those lies, b.p. has agreed to plead guilty to felony obstruction of congress. make no mistake. while the company is guilty, individuals committed these crimes. and we have also unsealed today a 23 count indictment charging b.p.'s two highest ranking supervisors aboard the deep water horizon with manslaughter and violation of the clean water act. the indictment charges the two b.p. well site leaders with negligent and gross negligence on 2010. the red flags indicating that the well was not secure both men failed to take appropriate action to prevent the blow out. a separate indictment was also unsealed today charging a former senior b.p. expect sive with obstruction of a investigation and making false statements to law enforcement officials. the indictment alleges that he on behalf of b.p. intentionally under estimated the amount of oil flowing from the well. he allegedly cherry picked pages from documents, with held other documents al together and lied to congress and others to make this spill appear less catastrophic than it
is going on in the future, would you hire in this environment? the closer we get to the deadline, more than likely it looks like they will cobble something together. that is looking more and more likely that companies just keep their wallets closed, and then what? >> well, we had largest drop in stock market today that we've had all y year, because yesterdy status quo won, that status quo, has a situation where are running trillion dollar deficits, 16 trillion in debt and a fiscal cliff coming in a couple months, everyone is saying, we need fundamental reform, we have to deal with government spending. neil: i think refor was rejected. reforming the financial system, reforming the budget process, was not a top priority on american's minds when they want to continue with what we have, i don't know how more discouraging that could be. i am not surprised they sold off like they did. >> well, i don't think reform was rejected yesterday. neil: i hope you are right, but i don't know. >> i think that -- absolutely not, because i think this american people, need reform to happen, we need spending to
? how is your portfolio altered? >> neil, you've got to cover the downside of this environment. they want them unprotected against losses. they're anticipating antibusiness climate, anticipating uncertainty pickling business contractions and so we're covering the downside making sure we're in a position where we can make money when the market is going up to be productive if the market is going down and lock it in on the way up. neil: what do you play besides lead futures and protecting us from nuclear fallout? >> there are three ways to have your money completely protected against loss, fb fdic insurance. they're gravitating towards the guaranteed contract because the principle is guarantee against losses and make it the spitting and that is the important thing to do. neil: thank you very, very much. you know, when we look at this whole health care law, some a deadline set, click next year when you have to start getting everyone into the system and pay the search tax the rich will have to pay in order to continue sustaining it, there's a deadline coming on friday that almost no
are looking at, as you said, an environment in which people are in panic mode over the fiscal cliff. i think there is a lot of support, actually, because the population does not seem to understand what the fiscal cliff is and what it means. what they are hearing on television is a lot of hype about what will happen if the fiscal cliff is not avoided. that is actually generating quite a bit of support for both sides to come together. it seems adult. it seems like the right thing to do. put your partisan differences aside for the country, and find some way to avoid the cliff. what that means in practice is striking some kind of deal, what we have heard of, as a grand bargain. it is important to keep in mind that the grand bargain itself, is really a form of austerity. this is an austerity plan. when you have an economy that is still struggling to find its feet, and you are talking about imposing austerity, i think we have seen pretty clearly, watching europe over the last 3.5 years -- that is not a good idea. we definitely have time to start -- to stop and get this right, before we follow gree
investment and the people, to follow our country in the competitive environment, and taxes is one of them. when you do that, you will get more revenue. it's guaranteed. again, it is sort of that thing we were talking about earlier. this is an opportunity for us as a country. and if you look at the congressional budget office analysis, what tax reform could mean in terms of macroeconomic impact of growth, i mean, all of them will lead to more growth, whether it is corporate tax reform or individual tax reform. >> he said this was fought over in the campaign and we fought over tax rates. rising tax rates. jay carney, the white house press secretary did say that the president will veto any bill that extends the current tax rates. so he insists that tax rates go up those making over $250,000. what would your recommendation be to the republican party in the senate? >> first, i believe the resident does have a detailed view of the press secretary. i like the president's comments better than jay carney's comments. i think jay carney was maybe, i think he was a little behind the curtain. i hope.
situations but also to look at the bigger public policy, that of the environment and that of climate change and global warming. we need to be cognizant of our stewardship over the -- our planet. we need to make certain that if these data that are compiled are telling us that there is increased prescription, for instance, over the catskills watershed, in my district, let's respond accordingly to sound public policy as it relates to our environment and our stewardship of the environment and let's be cognizant of the needs in response of this measure. you know, i'll just say this, and i know you want to add to this discussion here. i'll say this, in a time where government perhaps has been hit hard by critics out there suggesting there's no role for public sector here, we need to reduce government, i can tell you people addressing the war room, as they designated it, putting together all of the professionalism and academics and people who operate these programs and how well trained, watching that compilation, that collaborative effort of these profession alcs who are responding to public -- pr
enough tov a job in a 7.9% unemployment environment has done his or her job. if we don't do our job, we get fired. they are pushing it down, the president doesn't call up speak are boehner and say, let's solve this. nobody does anything. >> you have an absolute, wob -- 100%, legitimate complaint. the president sens his budgets up to the hill and he is so unconcerned that every democratic senator voted against the obama budget. what his reaction? totally unserious. this is back's up against the wall. if the president leads, we have a real chance. but let's don't be kidding ourselves. you are not going to write a tax reform bill in a few weeks. >> greta: why should i believe under your plan, if they push it down the road -- we already did that -- that is not believable. what has changed? nothing. >> not my plan. no offense, but -- >> greta: you know what i mean i. under my prediction. >> greta: your prediction. >> you might say. >> greta: that's better. you talk about the budget. and you know, i was reading tonight about how the budget -- where we set our priorities, the nation's prioriti
unemployment until we figure out what the macroeconomic environment is going to do next year. so the sooner we know that, the more we can get about hiring people. so the longer it takes, the more difficult it is to be able to turn things around in 2013. >> woodruff: so each side, mr. bertolini, is arguing they've got public opinion on their side. the republicans are saying the pubc isehind them i believing that to raise taxes on the well-to-do people earning over $250,000 a year is going to hurt growth and it's going to kill jobs and it's not something they want to do. >> judy, no matter how you do the arithmetic, we have to raise revenue and we have to deal with entitlement programs. you can't do this all by raising taxes and you can't do it all by cutting costs. so i think americans really want the truth. they want leadership that says here's what we need to do no matter how difficult it is. personal accountability on the parof washington to get something done and then a level of transparency about what's being done so that people can see progress along the way. that's the way we do it in bu
of moving on, i think it's going to be tough, but i think the president was right that the environment's different. and i think his remarks later today, which are a huge deal in this process, i think will reflect the fact that he sees a different environment, a different possibility. the senate's ready to do a deal. and speaker boehner is a big part of the final solution, and i think he looks like he's ready to do a deal. >> i think just to get you off the hook a little bit, i think one of the keys here is what you didn't anticipate and very few people anticipated was not just that obama would win, but that he would win as decisively as he won and that the republicans would face the setbacks they faced in the senate and that so much of the political environment that's not just the presidential but across the board would be such a repudiation, such a chastening moment for republicans. that's been a big part of why the fever might break because it's broader. >> the senate defeats for me were far more chilling. >> right. >> as a republican. again, we absorbed it the first night. i remembe
in that environment but the voters wanted them to address the short and long-term problems with the economy which means how to raise incomes in what is the future the middle-class and put that issue on the table. with a the second term would be about. that is what this coalition is looking for but that is what those white voters are looking for. it is not tenable that your worldview is mainly focused on leaving the obligations of the commitment you made. you should recruit romney and mccain as the two last presidential candidates in the republican party and it won't be on the ballot in next time to negotiate along with the chamber of commerce to negotiate a deal on immigration reform from the beginning. if i were them i would get it out of the way and then you'll open up the economics and have a much greater challenge because on that, the voters are less sure the president knows how he is going to raise incomes and create jobs and that is i think the first thing he has to do. >> we have a comments from the audience. go ahead. >> let's not underestimate the challenge the president faces. the elect
are not in a warm environment. everything is wet, everything is moist. so i just -- i can't -- i can't see this happening in america. but here we go again. this is katrina 2012 for a lot of people here in the new york area. shannon: there was amazing voter turnout in philadelphia and some are questioning the numbers. up next we'll take a look to see if those figures add up. plus the big companies saying president obama's healthcare law could force them to make tough decisions to stay afloat. >> if you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. if you like your healthcare plan, you will be able to keep your healthcare plan, period. no one will take it away. no matter what.

countries that have more competitive environment and taxes are one of them. yes, we have to reform the tax code. when you do that, i will get more revenue. it is guaranteed. again, sort of as i was talking about earlier. this is opportunities here. this is opportunity for us as a country. if you look at the congressional budget analysis and joint tax committee analysis, what tax reform could mean in terms of macroeconomic impact and growth, all will lead to more growth, whether corporate tax reform or individual tax reform. >> right but if the president insists as he did last friday, this was fought over in the campaign and, fought over tax rates, rising tax rates, he didn't ice the words rates himself but jay carney, the white house press secretary said the president will veto any bill that extends the current tax rates. if he insists that tax rates go up for those making over $250,000, what's, what would your recommendation be to the republican congress and senate? >> first having worked in two white houses i believe a president does have a veto over the press secretary. thank goodness b
investment is going to follow countries that have a more competitive environment in taxes is one of them's a we have to reform the tax code and when you do that you will get more revenue. it's guaranteed. again, as i was talking at earlier there are opportunities here for us as a country and if you look at the congressional budget analysts this and go to the tax committee analysis what tax reform could mean in the economic growth and all of them will lead to more growth with this corporate tax reform. estimate of the president says what he did last friday, this was fought over in the campaign and we fought over rising tax rates. jay carney said they would veto any bill that extends the current tax rate so if he insists that tax rates go out for those making over to under $50,000 will would your recommendation before the conference in the senate? >> working in to white house is i believe a president does have a veto because i like the president's comments better than jay carney's comments. i think jay carney mabey was a little behind the curve on that because look, it makes no sense to ta
are being formed today in an environment that's much, much more radical than was the case nearly a decade earlier. i think there are some important lessons that the u.s. can learn from iraq and from afghanistan and from what's taking place there. but again the thing i would take away and the thing i would really stress to people is that this is not a war that the u.s. can win on its own. it's very -- it's very tempting for the u.s. to see a problem and to want to go in and solve it all the way. and i think there has to be a realization that sometimes being so pro active and carrying out so -- proactive and carrying out so many missile strikes and drone strikes can actually have a negative impact. >> ibrahim, did you want to chime in on this one? >> well, i didn't hear the question. i have a hard time hearing from the audience. but what greg said made sense to me so thank you. [laughter] >> i'm sorry. i'll start repeating the question to make sure we can get it. >> thank you. >> in the back. >> thank you. good morning. my name is giancarlo gonzalez with talk radio service. yemeni president
. >> jim put out serious policy issue on the table. this is a partisan, you know, environment that we're in. we're inside the u.s. capital here, step from the capitol here inside the committee room. there's not much that happened in washington today because of the bart disan fighting. it there there room after of the agenda we spend $6 billion in a campaign beating each other's brains out and came up with the same president, congress, and senate four serious bipartisan efforts on curing diseases like alzheimer's or any other short of agenda. we start somebody from a partisan perspective. , ralph. [laughter] >> well, let me put it on the wish list. part of this i'm sure the partisan comment. the i looked at ralph's reaction to this, he said if we look at what the pattern of the vote in 2010 election that is replicated to stwowrt, then we will then, you know, we can have a big push back against the democrats. okay. the now that is a formula, that's what happened in 2010. 2010 set up 2012. that is the extremism of the polarization that set up the 2012 election. we have a situation where republ
discussions would lead to a more stable likelihood of a more stable environment and i would put that forward as a way of engaging other countries and hopefully by closing the gap which i believe has happened over the last several years between the military industry to historically working for the military for the common good for the country in which we are operating and this will lead to more stability in a larger sense as a part of society along with the rule of law and stable economy and thriving business, eight parts society. >> i have an answer that is quite controversial that doesn't have to do with the military perce but has to do with the policy on how much u.s. controlled the development of medical devices and drugs and it has become so problematic that big pharma and medical technology developers are now going to other countries to do clinical trials and the work that is necessary to prove there are drugs and devices that work successfully in humans. this is a very backward way of promoting national security in the context of preventing people from disease and injury through advance
, it is not his choice anymore. what is different about this environment is that the bush tax rate will expire. we will revert to the rates under clinton for everyone unless president obama signed an extension. after this campaign, that would be pretty shocking. he ran explicitly but as a candidate to say that he will raise taxes on the top. unless he suddenly decides that, i didn't mean it, it does not really matter all that much what house speaker thinks. the tax cut will expire unless obama is willing to extend it. that changes the whole dynamic. virtually all of the republicans have signed the grover norquist pledge to not raise tax rates. if the tax cuts expire at the end of the year and then in january you extended for 97% of americans, the new never voted to raise tax rates. your only cutting taxes. it is possible for something like that -- when the speaker said that yesterday, it was not really reflecting the world that he now lives in. unless the president is willing to extend the tax cuts, they will not be extended. >> i have a question for you. to what extent will there be a major -- th
folks at the highest classified levels, they do that in a classified environment, get to the bottom of what did we know, when did we know it, how did it come to us and what did those feeds look like and how did we fuse that picture and disseminate that picture? once we get a better sense of that, you can say with greater confidence we need to combine armed services, we need the combined intelligence and foreign affairs. >> david petraeus is going to testify tomorrow, he was head of the cia. he was in benghazi. he talked to the surviving players i should say. will he have every single answer that lawmakers need? >> oh, no, carol, not at all. you know the answer to that question. he'll have through his own filter and through the filter -- every piece of data that is input goes through a filter on multiple levels to include your personal level. so he's not going to have every answer. he's going to be able to provide what he was able to assess. and in spite of what he's dealing with on a personal level, he can compartmentize very, very well. we've now figured that out. he'll be able to
's different about this environment is fax the tax rates, the bush tax rates to expire for everybody. after this campaign would be pretty shocking as any candidate ever. i am going to raise taxes, and unless he suddenly decides i didn't mean it it doesn't really matter all that much what the speaker thinks is acceptable because on this one issue that tax cuts will expire. all house republicans a sign grover norquist not to raise tax rates. the entire bush tax cut expires the end of the year you extend it for 97% of americans he's never actually voted to raise taxes. you're only cutting taxes. so it's possible when the speaker said that yesterday i was thinking it wasn't really reflecting the world that he now lives and so unless the president is willing, they will not be. >> i have a question for you. to what extent will there be a major -- it was in the republican party against the tea party. >> i'm sorry? >> to what extent will there be an overt republican movement against the tea party? >> i don't know that there would be a strong overt movement against them in large part the sort of fea
. >> so jim has just put a serious policy issue on the table. this is a partisan, you know, environment that we're in. we're inside the u.s. capitol here, or steps from the capitol inside a committee room. there's not much that happens in the washington today because of the partisan fighting. um, is there room after this agenda where we just spent $6 billion in a campaign beating each other's brains out and came up with the same president, the same congress and the same senate for serious, bipartisan efforts on curing diseases like alzheimer's or any other short of agenda? ralph or stan, we start with somebody from a partisan perspective. >> well, let me put the this on my wish list. i'm sure this seems like it's going to be a partisan comment. the -- i looked at ralph's reaction to this, um, where he said that if we look at what the pattern of who votes in the 2010 election, if that is replicated in 2014, um, then we will, then we can have a big pushback against the democrats, okay? the -- now, that's a formula, because that's what happened in 2010. 2010 set up 2012. that is, the extre
